    Nice going on the reverse-fork idea. I like that.

    The chain / seat stays had a little tube coming out before it split into the individual pipes toward the dropouts....

    It was easier to cut off the individual tubes vs the thicker main tube... so I just left those bits out there > I plan to use them to mount lights and other items =)


    I used a single speed adapter kit (shimano compatible) to convert my rear wheel into a single speed:



    One side of the spacer is a bit wider than the other (and it is reversible) so my chainline is 100% spot on. No need for a tensioner.

    Now I can use the BIG RING !!!!!

    Much more speed, and the chain will stay PUT no matter how fast I turn !

    ^^^^ Looks great !

    I'd like to comment on your chain, it looks extraordinarily tight.

    I had a problem getting the perfect tension due to the inability to
    adquire the correct rear cog.

    My chainline is very straight, but the tension is just not adequate.
    Maybe if I could find one of those half-links or something I may
    get it right, so for the mean time I just added a deraileur to use
    as a tensioner. =)

    I had the same problem with adjusting my chain.
    What i did was take the part that the wheel sets in
    (not sure what it call)
    of the rear forks i chopped off the top frame
    and welded on the bottom rear forks to allow for adjustment
    I will try to get i shot up sometime today
    my explaining aint all that good

    another awesome (read: no welding, looks like it shouldn't work, etc...) solution to the "i need to adjust chain tension, but the dropouts won't allow it" problem is a ghost chainring:



    the trick is finding the right sized ring to put in between the front chainring and the cog/freewheel/coaster. i'm guessing if you're building a tallbike, finding chainrings of different sizes won't be a problem...

    I used a ghost ring for awhile because it looks cool, but they always end up falling out when I'm going 30 downhill in the dark. And they don't just flop in the road, they take off rolling and jump in a ditch somewhere.

    Now I welded horz dropouts in and aint had a prob.
